Links I Think You'll Like

Posted: April 18th, 2010 | Author: | Tags: , , , , , , , | No Comments »

One of the things Twitter has been so powerful in doing is sharing content across the Internet.  Yeah, it’s great to carry on conversations with friends, or listen to John Mayer make his funny jokes after midnight, but the links and news stories and youtube videos and funny photos and on and on that I’ve caught because of Twitter is astounding. Here are some links I’ve stumbled upon that I think are shareworthy, in no particular order:

First up, the annual “Forbes Fictional 15,” calculating the 15 richest fictional characters in the world… of imaginary characters.

Global markets are rapidly recovering from the 2008 financial crisis, and so are the fortunes of the fictitious. There are six new characters on the 2010 edition of Fictional 15, our annual ranking of fiction’s richest, with an average net worth of $7.3 billion.


The name says it all with this one. It’s an “epic and honest mobile home commercial.” Nuff said.

We’re in April, and that means only one thing: Stanley Cup Playoffs time! I’m sure I’ll have more hockey-related links in the coming weeks, but this story was pretty hard to get through, one of those “how do people go on” moments. Excellent piece from TSN (Canada) reporter James Duthie on Taylor Pyatt, who had a cup of coffee in Rochester on his way to the NHL.


Is it just me, or does Mother Earth seem to be trying to tell us something? Earthquakes shaking the ground from Haiti to Chile and Turkey to China, I’m wearing shorts on April 17, and an ash cloud from Iceland is closing airports throughout Europe. Don’t look now, but the world may be coming to an end.

A view with even more compelling data to be found on NYTimes.com.

I like this one because… well, these people are dumb. More revolutionary rhetoric from the Tea Party nuts (is creating your own language revolutionary?):
